This is a tall thin mountain, situated in the english lake district. It is on its own for at least 200 metres. It is a scramble to climb, a winding path up the eastern side, almost vertical. Can be dangerous because there is a thin ridge, coming out 1500 feet up. Gales can nearly knock you off so be careful when ascenting.
